Detective Inspector Natasha Nield said: "The supply of illegal drugs will not be tolerated in Hampshire and we seek to prevent anyone from making money from this activity which causes misery to the lives of others within our communities.
"The warrants were executed as part of our Operation Fortress campaign which seeks to reduce the harm of drug-related violence.
Police want to hear from anyone who is concerned about illegal drugs or drug-related crime in their neighbourhood and say the things to look out for include a sudden increase in visitors to a property, people leaving and returning on numerous occasions throughout the day and loitering in an area and using their mobile phones frequently.
